This is a new post at Kings, where we want a band 6 OT to help set up and lead under guidance, the provision of OT across the cardiology wards. You will automatically access excellent clinical supervision and support from experienced OTs within the Specialist Medical Team. Working as a band 6 OT at Kings offers excellent opportunities for developing clinical, managerial and educational skills.
Band 6 posts have the opportunity to access funds for external training, however, the internal resources of the department provide ample opportunity for increasing clinical skills and knowledge. The band 6 OTs have regular cross department meetings as part of peer review and networking.
